Storyline

Lex returns to Smalville and the Lex mansion, and invites Dr. Helen Bryce for a second honeymoon while trying to find out if it was her or his father who attempted to kill him. Meanwhile, Clark also returns to Smallville and the Kent farm, but Morgan Edge finds him and threatens to kill Jonathan and Martha in to get what Clark stole from Lionel Luthor's safe, which is the stolen vile of Clark Kent's blood. With the financial status of the Kent family in dire straights, the farm is sold in an auction, but there is a surprise in the end. Also, Lana tries to declare her love for Clark, but he rejects her love out of fear that she may discover his secret. Clark also returns to Smallville High and to the Torch newspaper under Chloe who continues to investigate Clark's origins. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Excellent and Surprising
16 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second half of a two-part series to start Season 3 doesn't disappoint. Though the explanations behind some crimes are not mentioned much, it doesn't take much away from this killer episode.

Somebody needs to stop Clark from his heists in Metropolis, and bring him back to Earth- er, make that the farm. It's surprising who gets the power to do this. Lex finally gets back in town and sets in motion his revenge on Helen. A new evil figure comes into play in Morgan Edge, and he threatens main characters until Clark is able to help. Most of all, Clark and Lana's relationship takes a surprising turn, thanks to Clark.

I loved how this episode resolved, both how Clark was brought back and how Lex works on vengeance. I also love how Clark turns away Lana for the first time when everything looks good in their relationship. For all three of these reasons, the episode surprised me, which made it all the better.
